    @ROKTOY, yes we have managed to get some goats. No we didn’t go to Buller gorge. @Soutpiel and I enjoyed an enjoyable day approximately 3 km up Canoe Stream which is just north of Barrytown. The exercise of the day was some meat for the freezer rather than a culling trip. With one single shot Bergara between us we took two nanny’s and a kid home. Plenty of goats up there, but you have to look for them up side streams. Also reasonable sign of deer as well though we were there during midday rather than first or last light.

    If you do happen to go into the Buller gorge it would be great to know how you get on.

    Cheers
    Phil

    Not sure where you live mate but have a look around Lake Brunner for goats, there used to be heaps on Te Kinga and the rivers that head towards the lake from Te Kinga. Also Mt French and the Hohonu range. Although not sure whether there has been any aerial 1080 recently.

    Their service is not fit for purpose and is therefore in direct contravention of the Fair Trading Act. They could have told you it was a shit idea and they didn't, even when asked, in the case of DOC.
    Arses, either way.
    Seems like fraud. How could Helisika expect to answer "Why did you fly them there when you could not fail to have noticed, given your aerial view of the countryside, the dozens, if not hundreds, of rotting carcasses littering the area"
    Helisika: "Your honour, most of our pilots are actually legally blind, and do not have the capacity to actually see the carcasses you state were there."
    "You say "you state were there", yet we have the actual photographic evidence of exactly that"
    Helisika: "Our legal team has determined that these so called "photographs" are, in fact, deep fakes, and should never have been presented as evidence."
    "And the smell?"
    "The blades downforce blows the smell away." So, finally, the first piece of truth in their whole story.

    But I can also confirm their pilots are quite sharp eyed when it comes to tracer rounds. That's what happens when you sneak over the permanently restricted line in the Southern Kaimanawas snooping around in the valley bottoms looking for easy deer
